Happy birthday to Alex

who are you?

we are funkstörung, which is michael fakesch (that's me!) and chris de luca. i am german and chris is italian, although we were both born in germany, actually rosenheim, which is near munich. we founded funkstörung about 8, 9 years ago and are mostly well known for remixes (e.g. björk, wu-tang clan, jean michel jarre, lamb, speedy j, philip boa, faust, a guy called gerald, barry adamson,...). we have done quite a few records although most of them are very limited releases, especially the records on acid planet, bunker records and musik aus strom, our own label. since almost five years we are signed to k7 records, where we did one album called appetite for disctruction and two remix compilations called additional productions and viceversa. currently we are working on our new album.

on what records/releases have you used smartelectronix software?

chris has used smartelectronix on his solo album deadly wiz da disko. we also used smartelectronix on the barry adamson remix and on the new album almost every song is done with smartelectronix...

what do you think about smartelectronix software/mentality?

no bullshitting, when it comes to cool plug-ins smartelectronix are the best!!! we just adore destroy fx, they are great, easy to use, don't crash and are fun to play around with. the best thing about smartelectronix is that the software is for free! besides to that the guys from smartelectronix are great guys, real music lovers and funny blokes, and that's what you easily recognize when using their software...

do you know any other artists that use our software?

hmmm, is there any electronica/idm artist who doesn't use smartelctronix?!
